Hello,
After upgrading from Proxmox 4.1 to 4.4, at the reboot of proxmox ve I get the following message:
Failed to load ZFS modules.
Manually load the modules and exit
I have 2 WD 2 To disks with ZFS RAID 1.
All was correct before the upgrade. I stopped everyVM beforer upgrade.

Then enter the subscription key and then "apt-get update" and then "apt-get upgrade" (every seamed to be OK).

When I reboot pve, I land in busybox and get the message "Failed to load ZFS modules".

How have I to modify the configuration files to load the zfs modules?

Best regards for your help

always use "apt-get dist-upgrade", not "apt-get upgrade"! you can try booting using the installer's rescue mode, then do "apt-get update; apt-get dist-upgrade; update-initramfs -u". please also include the output of "pveversion -v"

Indeed, I think I did "apt-get upgrade" instead of "apt-get dist-upgrade"!

So I try the installer rescue mode but it doesn't boot because of the disk raid drivers are not on the installer disk.
I have to add them and try again.

Thanks

Yes it's with disk raid with zfs
Sorry, I was not precise enough: hardware disk raid and ZFS? If you only use ZFS, the installer will support this (your can use it to install, therefore it works). What error or problem is shown?

Finaly I try to install proxmox on another PC with the save configuration but the installation hang too.
I get the following error message: "modprobe error: could not insert 'kvm_adm' : operation not supported"
